It is a well-known fact that great power should always come with great responsibilities. But regardless of the fact, the power in this society comes with great arrogance and corruption; once the taste of power creeps to the evil minds, it takes upon the rationality of our thoughts and turns it into anything that can prove to be extremely dangerous.
Recently it has been observed that all the digital platforms are coming forth with many series related to the army, soldiers, spies, patriotism et-cetera. With all the men in uniform it is good to see for a change when a woman is honoring the uniform and standing up to the culture of male dominated society. Code M is one such series which has been a very controversial Hindi language web series starring Jennifer Winget for her digital debut on India’s one of the most successful OTT platforms, ALT-Balaji and ZEE5.
Code M is a suspense crime drama. The series premiered on 15th January, 2020 and the story follows a path of many mysterious events. The series is developed by the infamous Ekta Kapoor. Speaking of the prolific writers who made it extremely suspenseful are: Shubhra Chatterji, Aparna Nadig, Aniruddha Guha and Sulagna Chatterjee. The direction of the series is done by Akshay Choubey and it is produced/created by Juggernaut Productions for ALT Balaji and ZEE5. The Code M Season-1 has 8 episodes with each episode’s run time being 20-25 minutes. Now that I’ve mentioned ‘Season-1’ of the series, let me crack the big news… YES! The series is coming back with a second season adding more to the suspense and drama in the lives of army officials.
RELEASE DATE OF SEASON-2
Military lawyer, Major Monika Mehra (Jennifer Winget) is coming back on duty and as the Season-1 has proved to be one of the best in this genre, the audience is eagerly waiting for Season-2 of the Code M franchise. Although the exact date is not yet released by the producers, it will soon be released by the makers. As per the sources, the second season is expected to release in April, 2021. The season-2 of the franchise will again be released on ALT Balaji and ZEE 5. If the aforementioned OTT platforms continue to come up with smart shows like Code M, they will someday catch up with Netflix and Amazon Prime, the big boys of the game.
WHAT IS CODE M SEASON-1 ABOUT?
Season-1 of Code M revolves around Indian Army Lawyer, Major Monika Mehra who is called upon for the investigation of a conspiracy case. The story begins with a flashback where three army officers are chasing suspected militants and their encounter happens where one of the army officials, Major Ajay Paswan is martyred.
But the mother and other people of the place where the army base camp is situated in Munabao village of Jodhpur (Rajasthan) protests that the two boys encountered were not militants, they were local boys and worked for the army as their informants. The mother of the suspected militants burns herself in front of the crowd as to attempt suicide, showing her grief and loss. After this incident Col. Suryaveer Chauhan calls Monika Mehra for an individual enquiry of the case who is also Monika’s father’s friend. Monika is on a vacation with her fiancé and within 15 days she’s about to get married but for an army officer ‘Nation before family’.
As she arrives in Jodhpur, the case file is handed over to her. She is told again and again that this is nothing but an open and shut case but she is not convinced with all the facts she is served in her platter and wants to look further into the matter. The investigation continues, Major Gaurav Shekhawat and Major Shakti Mandappa who were also involved in the operation along with Major Ajay Paswan were asked to give their statements as to exactly what happened during the encounter. Major Shakti said that they were called by Ajay and they didn’t know he was behind two militants, so as they tried to take them down, one of the militants shot Major Ajay Paswan. Even after their statements Monika is skeptical of the two. Later on, Monika is given a photograph by an anonymous biker and the picture reveals that Major Shakti and one of the suspected militants knew each other before the encounter.
Major Monika Mehra is now determined to unravel the truth and as the story proceeds, she comes across her ex-boyfriend (Angad Sandhu) as well but no romantic flashes of their past show the maturity of the series. The eight-episode series adds all the flavors of a perfect drama. Whether it be cold-blooded murder, encounter or the ugly truth of casteism everything will leave you bewildered in the end.
WHAT CAN WE ACCEPT FROM SEASON-2?
Although the story or even a glimpse of it is still not disclosed by producers through the promo, it is said that the story is based on true events of an army official which will again be represented by Jennifer Winget as Major Monika Mehra. We are about to witness the brave officer who can sacrifice her family for the nation and her duty towards it comes first for her. Her preferences are still the same: ‘Nation before family’
The whole army set up in season-1 of the franchise was quite interesting so it is expected that this season will again leave a mark of honor in the hearts of fans. The emotional angle in the first season was well gripped by the cast and it is expected to be the same with season-2. It is a matter of fact and time to see, will Major Monika Mehra be able to crack the Code M?
